I used a home depot brass brush for like 2 years and it was fine. Just don't go overboard with the brushing. If you want, you can pick up tools and stuff real cheap at the end of this season. Last year, I got a Swix bronze brush and nylon brush for like 10 bucks total at REI in the clearance winter section.

Someone posted a kit that had brass,nylon, and horsehair for $30. I read that hardware store brushes are more aggressive. I haven't done a comparison, but I would figure it would be more aggressive. I would just be careful, even if it is a specific brush for snowboard/ski bases, I still wouldn't spend a lot of time, maybe a couple of passes and thats it.
